10 Amazing Star Trek Projects We Wish We Could’ve Seen.
3. Star Trek Phase II
Proposed by/Year: Paramount, 1977
What it was: A sequel TV series that would’ve followed the now more established group of the USS Enterprise on a new mission into the obscure. They would be alongside a cluster of youthful new characters. It would’ve included Xon, a youthful Vulcan science officer, first officer William “Will” Decker and Deltanempath Lt. Ilia. The more youthful performing artists would’ve allowed the production a greater chance to proceed if the first cast ever chose to leave.
Why it never happened: The series was intended to be the foundation of another Paramount TV network. However, when the network failed to work out, the series was left without a home. After Star Wars got to be colossal, Paramount chose to take the two-hour pilot for the series “In Thy Image,” include more effects and unlimited successions of starships moving slowly and transform it into Star Trek: The Motion Picture. Of all the unmade Star Trek extends, this one had the most material reused for different projects. Aside from all that they utilized as a part of Star Trek: The Motion Picture, a great deal of Phase II wound up being reused on The Next Generation.
4. Star Trek: The First Adventure
Proposed by/Year: Ralph Winter, 1990
What it was: A proposed 6th unique series film. While chipping away at Star Trek V, maker Ralph Winter proposed a prequel film. It would be based on an old McCoy telling the narrative of how Spock and Kirk got to be friends to a pack of Starfleet cadets. It would show case a year of Kirk, Spock, Scotty and McCoy at Starfleet Academy, as they need to collaborate against another colleague, Kolibar, who is next in line for the throne of his slave-owning homeworld. The Starfleet cadets wind up taking an old starship from an alliance federation center for a standoff with Kolibar and to rescue old starship that McCoy is positioned on, the USS Enterprise.
Why it never happened: The first cast despised the thought, since they wouldn’t be in it. Initially, the first draft simply had old DeForest Kelley in it. However, the revised drafts included bookend cameos from Shatner and Nimoy. Gene Roddenberry said in interviews that he didn’t care for it since he wouldn’t have the capacity to cast the new performing artists. Also, Paramount chose to run with something more customary for Trek’s 25th anniversary, which got to be Star Trek VI.
